American Double / Imperial IPA |  10.00% ABV

Availability: Spring

Notes/Commercial Description:
Gubna was bred from Oskar Blues Brewery’s hankering to confront 100+ IBUs by cranking up the complexity of hops by pouring Cascade on top of copious amounts of Summit, then balancing that with a backbone of German Dark Munich Malt and Rye Malt. GUBNA’s post-fermentation dry-hopping with both hops allows this monstrosity to gently coax the citrus rind and grapefruit aroma while providing a rye malt-induced, spicy-yet-round middle, and a brisk, clean bitter finish (10 percent ABV, 100+ IBUs).

On tap @ Final Gravity in Roseville, CA

App- served in a 11.5oz snifter. Poured a hazy golden orange with a half finger white head. Fair, decently spotty lacing with good stick.

Smell - Predominantly Orange in aroma with hints of pine.

Taste - Pretty much just follows the nose, with over-ripened orange and hints of pine with light candied sweetness. Finishes much the same.

Mouthfeel - Close to full in body with fairly lively carbonation. Somewhat syrupy in the finish.

Overall - Good, but not exceptional. Seems to lack that extra umph that recent DIPA's deliver on.

Re-rate: 2014 version is even better. Poured from a can. Earthy fruity aroma. Taste is amazing. Huge yummy pineapple taste. So good. I don’t know if they could top it in 2015 if they switch the hops up again. ---- On tap for $3.50 a pint at brews brothers. Really like this beer. Happy to see it added on tap by me. Love the sweet caramel taste with the pungent summit hops. Very well balanced. Nice juicy citrus happyness.
